Girls Tie Collegiate

VSoccer713Madison White’s header off a cross by Sarah Smallets tied the game in the second half as the Oaks battled to a draw at the Collegiate School in Richmond Friday night.

The intense game went back and forth during the first half with the Cougars scoring first before Cameron Brown knotted the score.

Two more goals by Richmond Collegiate gave them a 3-1 halftime lead.

But the second half was a different story. The young Norfolk Collegiate team dominated. Brown scored her second goal a few minutes into the half, setting up White’s header. Smallets delivered crosses for all three goals.

Two five-minute overtime periods did not result in any scores.

Norfolk Collegiate entered the game ranked eighth in the Division I VISAA poll. Collegiate of Richmond was ranked fourth (Cape Henry is ranked second).

The Oaks play at third-ranked Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School today.
